Megan Crane


Megan Crane is the co-director of the Center on Wrongful Convictions of Youth. Megan represents individuals convicted of crimes that they did not commit when they were children or teenagers, with a particular focus on youth who falsely confessed to the crime. Most recently, Megan represented Davontae Sanford who falsely confessed to quadruple murder at 14. Davontae’s confession was overturned last year. Before CWCY, Megan represented individuals sentenced to death in California. In 2014, she was honored as a California Attorney of the Year for her work to exonerate George Souliotes, a man wrongfully convicted of arson and triple murder and sentenced to life without parole. He was released in 2013, after 17 years of wrongful incarceration.
